"Lack of centralized manufacturing execution management hinders a company’s ability to improve the perfect order performance."

Manufacturing Execution

Manufacturing execution begins where the Sales and Operations Plan ends. Effective manufacturing execution will turn productivity into profits instead of inventory. The scope of manufacturing execution includes the following functions:

Resource allocation and status
Operation detailed scheduling
Dispatching production units

Document control

Data collection and acquisition

Labor management
Quality management
Process management
Maintenance management
Product tracking and genealogy
Performance analysis

These functions can be supported by a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). The MES provides visibility of actual activity versus plan and is essential to maintaining control of the production operation.

We can help your company achieve excellence in manufacturing execution, applying industry best practices and appropriate MES technology.
